Atléti draw with Celta after conceding a late goal

Watch: Atlético drop points as Celta Vigo score dramatic late goal

February 8, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Diego Simeone's men were a few minutes away from going 10 points clear atop La Liga but were denied at the death.

Atletico Madrid were dealt a blow in their quest to extend the lead atop La Liga after conceeding a late goal in Monday night's clash with Celta Vigo. Diego Simeone's side were forced to drop two points after Facundo Ferreyra struck in the 89th-minute to tie the encounter at two-all.

Indeed, it was a tough night for Los Rojiblancos as an impressive start by Celta resulted in the capital club conceeding Santi Mina's opening goal in the 13th minute. However, the league leaders managed a great response as Luis Suarez added to his haul as the league's top goalscorer right on the stroke of half-time to restore parity.

The Uruguayan international was called upon once again in the second half. The former Barcelona striker's brilliant positioning and timing came in handy in the 50th minute, tapping home a low-cross from Renan Lodi to fire Atletico Madrid in front for the first time in the proceeding. Nevertheless, in the end, what was the attacker's 16th goal in 17 appearances will prove to be inadequate in securing the maximum points.

Against the run of play, Celta Vigo made the best of a swift counter-attacking move to grab a lifeline thanks to Facundo Ferreyra's 89th minute goal. Watch:

While the result in undoubtedly a little set-back, Atletico Madrid could go 11 points clear should they win their one outstanding game. In the meantime, the eight-point deficit instated as a result of the night's draw could be cut down to five should cross-town rivals get the better of Getafe in Tuesday's league clash.
